Data Science for Decision Makers

Designed specifically for executives, this online course delivered over four half-days focuses on group discussion about the relative trade offs between different options, strategies, and experiences. Data Science for Decision Makers summarizes the core concepts and methods of data science and explores the strategy of digital transformation through specific examples, case studies, and group discussions.

 

Course Details

Executives will quickly gain a high-level understanding of an otherwise deeply technical field, and the course will help you to separate AI-reality from AI-hype. Above all, the course will help you identify opportunities that can make a real difference to your bottom line.

The course is limited to 10 participants to foster discussion within the group.
